What are some considerations for a sun-inviting patio?

Patios - south and west exposure

Sun-inviting patios face south or west and are great in cooler climates where the sun's rays are welcome the entire year. A southern exposure is warmest, inviting the full day's sun, drying quickly after rains, and warming fastest on winter days. A western exposure offers a greater contrast with coolness in the morning and warmth in the afternoon.
